as soon as i started talking about putting term limits on congress, washington insiders went crazy. they said term limits are bad, that they'll break government. what a joke! congress is working fine for politicians and corporations, but it's not doing anything for real people on climate, health care or gun safety. the only way we get new ideas is electing new people, including a president willing to shake-up washington. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
back will a new outdoor terrace an observation deck is opening up tomorrow at sfo about that. >>so it's located before security in terminal 2 it's free that's most important and it's open to the public, the open air space gives visitors. one 80 degree view of the air feel it'll be open every day from 07:00am to 10:00pm terminal facilities, one more great thing about we always
complain about the delays that actually like therefore see how that new observation deck. and i'm dressing rooms at the airport. i didn't know that until i went there a couple of weeks ago, plenty of charging stations off like we always say you know that things negative things so how is the lighting its lighting that it's important note is good just for healthy organic choices. yes, you know what works and go show at the airport got on that new observation deck hatchet and what's out there you know watching the planes land and take off you know, how's the weather going to be for that we're going to have some good weather this afternoon i wouldn't go out there that the kitchen in the it's a definitely going to be a little on the foggy side for those of you. >>are the heading of out about really anywhere in the bay area you can see the impact of some of the low lying cloud cover right above the city of san francisco, it's a really blocking out your view into the bay just yet but this fog
is going to sink a little bit lower later on in this morning commute. >>and that is going to have more of his visibility impact right along the bay and then especially into the north bay at times this morning, southeastern parts and southern parts of the bay area are going to see our clearest of conditions and thus that least impact in visibility high pressure still set in place but we are seeing a switch up in the jet stream, this is one of the reasons we are starting off the morning with some fog now we have a pretty decent on shore flow. all that means is ocean cool they're being pushed into the bay rather than that warm dry air that was being drawn out on our windier days so you get the winds and you get some of her clear skies you start to see these calm conditions and you see those winds pushing in from the ocean and yeah that's when that marine layer that cool fog has the chance to filter on in such as we are seeing this morning. temperatures right now in the 40's and 50's later on today we're talking 50's and 60's so not a huge range of
temperatures to be talking from start to finish its one of our cooler days your forecast but still sitting a little above average for this time of year mountain view you be up to 65 degrees. some of our south bay temperatures actually the warmest and no big surprise there because you are also looking at some of our clear skies further south in the bay. the further north you get the more pronounced that impact a fog becomes and a little bit cooler as far as your temperatures go out of the 70's from yesterday and sonoma down to 6412 and b show each only 62 santa rosa in petaluma crazy to think just a couple of days ago you were at 80 or near it today only in the mid 60's. so pretty good drop in temperatures tomorrow similar daytime highs to today temperatures do climb into saturday for the day after a valentine's day. sunday morning our only chance of rainfall in the forecast and even then only a few light showers possible up in the north bay other than that this forecast is dry and it is pretty warm as well.
>>robin all right, thank you john now, let's check in on traffic we're off to a good start we don't have any problems here on 18 to san francisco, maybe a little bit of a backup. and that's really just off and on and some of your cash lanes it's been a great trip so far into san francisco all morning. we're at a very quick 7 minutes off to fremont street exit. all right we're off to the richmond sandra fell traffic looks good here on west bound 5.80 leading up to the pay gates here at 7 minutes. so that is very quick and right on time to make it into the north bay eastbound i do have word of a stall just before mid span eastbound before mid span, someone just stalled out in the right lane. so that's going to impact you leaving the north bay heading to the east bay, which is the counter commute directions. all right we're checking in on one on one you're looking good here on both sides 19 minutes, so that's right on time nevado to the toll plaza and then here's traffic tracker some more numbers more freeways take a peek see some of these freeways are a part of your commute we have the east shore that's only 14 minutes looking good off the car keenest

address the problems on approaches to the bay bridge that's on interstate 80. that's on interstate 5 8880 and on west grant. >>all right we shall see work on these projects could get under way before the end of the year. anything helps at this point the traffic is getting so bad on to national news lawmakers looking for answers after a new report show the us since is is not ready to make the 10 year count. washington correspondent kelli meyer reports. we are not behind with to go until the 2020 census is under way the director of the census is telling lawmakers not to worry, i'm from g a o and i'm paid to worry on your behalf but 2 officials from the nonpartisan government accountability office. >>said while the census bureau's early operations are mostly on schedule. the census is already behind on some of its goals, especially recruiting enough census, takers were sort of in a pressure cooker of time lawmakers pressed hard during a 3 hour long hearing for
assurances that the census will count everyone in 2020 including minority and world communities i need it this week north carolina congressman mark meadows press, the director of the census bureau. >>for a list of community partners that can help get the word out to hard to reach areas. it's a list lawmakers asked for at the end of last year you got people behind you turn around and ask him right now because we don't wait until you give me an answer and missouri congressman lacy clay asked the bureau to make sure it's finding ways to get the word out to minority communities. >>areas he says are historically undercounted. >>it is crucial that the bureau work to address the historic issue of fully and accurately county. the black community. the census officially begins april first, but a preliminary population count has already begun. >>reporting in washington. i'm kelly meyer. >>well still ahead on the kron 4 morning news contaminated
